Belt-Drive Turntable with Floating Suspension
The Yamaha YP-700 employs a professional type belt-drive system, a superior method of providing constant speed control and reducing vibrations.
The turntable platter is solid, die-cast aluminium, perfectly balanced to reduce distortion to an absolute minimum.
Yamaha's unique double-float-mounting-system eliminates chassis (induced) vibrations by mounting the turntable and tonearm on a single base, isolated from the chassis by shock-absorbing spring mounts.
The motor is similarly mounted on a separate base, further reducing the minuscule motor vibrations that reach the turntable base to an unmeasurable quantity.
The cue lever of the YP-700 provides a means of stopping play at any time and then re-starting again at the same point.
Use of the lever provides the correct starting stylus pressure, reducing the possibility of damaging the stylus and/or scratching the record when playing only a selected portion of a record.
